All Candidates Forum in Vanderhoof

Cariboo-Prince George riding: Vanderhoof hosts all-candidate forum on Oct. 9 as the federal election approaches.

An all-candidate forum for the Cariboo-Prince George riding will be taking place in Vanderhoof on Oct. 9 at NVSS’s Integris Community Theatre, formerly known as the Small Auditorium.

Sponsored by Community Futures Stuart Nechako and the Vanderhoof Chamber of Commerce, the event will start at 7:00 p.m., with doors open for audience members at 6:30 p.m.

Joe von Doellen, president of the Vanderhoof Chamber of Commerce, will be moderating the forum, while questions from the community can be submitted by writing at the beginning of the event, as well as orally during the forum when the floor would be opened to the public for the first time, said organizer Tom Bulmer from CFSN.
